Diary of an Early Retiree: How You Can Do It Step By Step by Becky Brinkley is a book for readers who are looking into retirement and gives step-by-step details on how to go about it without much difficulty. The book speaks about the money required to retire, how to avoid pitfalls and learn from the mistakes others have made, to create a personal plan to retire, to cut costs and increase savings, bid goodbye to the alarm clock, and make the early retirement dream into a reality. The book has something for everyone, no matter what the situation is, and the successful tactics in the book will work as an encouragement to readers who are looking for early retirement.

I like the way Becky Brinkley has approached the topic; that of writing in a diary which makes it different from the usual retirement planning books that are available on the market. This makes the book personal for readers as they are reading the author's diary and her tips about retirement. Becky Brinkley is very methodical and detailed as she speaks about the techniques which can help readers create retirement plans easily. The topic has been dealt with in a simple way, making it easy for readers to navigate through the suggestions and apply them to make their retirement dream become a reality. Diary of an Early Retiree is an engaging book for everyone and will make them look at their overall expenditure and their spending patterns and see what can be done to make healthy changes.
